>It gets climbed.  It's the highest peak in North America.  20,310 feet, 6190 meters.

I've not done it, sadly, and probably never will unless the lottery
comes good.  But I understand it's tougher than the bare height would
suggest, because of where it is.  

I've climbed a similar height in the Himalayas.  I gather McKinley is a
harder climb.
By the end of the 20th Century there will be a generation to whom it will not
be injurious to read a dozen quire of newspapers daily, to be constantly called
to the telephone...and to live half their time in a railway carriage or in a
flying machine...                       - (Max Nordau, 1895)
